Additional tips
  • A looseleaf service, also known as a commentary, was originally published in binders which allowed pages to be removed and added for updates. Most of these commentaries are now available online on Lexis Advance, Westlaw AU and CCH iKnowConnect.
  • Looseleaf services may include the most recent service number or the date of last update.
  • Pinpoints should be to paragraphs and appear in square brackets [ ], unless the ¶ symbol is used (often in CCH), in which case square brackets are omitted.

Online looseleaf service - author (AGLC4 rule 7.8)
